West University Place – Three-term Republican State Representative Sarah Davis officially announced her campaign for re-election, vowing an “aggressive campaign of ideas.”
“I have been a leading champion in the Texas House for women’s health, including providing more funding for cancer screening and preventive care,” said Davis. “I passed bills to make government more transparent and accountable to taxpayers, and supported a balanced budget that improves our roads and schools, invested a record amount in border security, and set aside $11 billion in the state’s ‘Rainy Day Fund’ in the event of a fiscal emergency.”
“I will put that record up against any challenger, Republican or Democrat, because it is the right record and the right vision for District 134.”
Davis, 39, has served her most recent two terms on the powerful House Calendars Committee and the House Appropriations Committee. She was also appointed as the lead House negotiator on health care budget issues. She chaired the House Appropriations Sub-Committee on Budget Transparency and Reform, and has been a leading voice on health issues as a member of the House Committee on Public Health, serving on that committee for all three of her terms.
“As a cancer survivor, I will always champion high quality, pioneering care that saves lives and improves health outcomes,” said Davis. “As a fiscal conservative, I will always fight to limit the size and growth of government, and ensure Texas never turns into a fiscal nightmare like New York or California.”
“I offer our district a constructive, conservative approach to solving problems, while voting for limited government so our constituents can experience unlimited opportunity,” said Davis.
Davis has been re-elected with increasing margins each term, winning the 2014 primary with 71 percent of the vote and defeating her Democratic opponent by a 22-point margin.
Davis is a successful litigator in the Houston office of the national firm Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith, LLP. She earned a Bachelors Degree in Economics from Baylor University, and a Law Degree from the University of Houston. She lives in West University Place with her husband Kent Adams, and their Yorkie, Mr. Henry.
